Something About a Bear Synopsis

Where the water churns with salmon, thick and rich with leaping fishes, there the brown bear stands and catches the wild king of the river.

Eight wild bears – Moon Bear, Sun Bear, Sloth Bear, Brown Bear, Spectacled Bear, American Black Bear, Giant Panda and Polar Bear – all shown in their wild habitats in spectacular watercolour paintings.

Bears have wandered through Jackie Morris’s artwork for years, with their wild beauty. In all her books she tries to instil in children and adults alike a love of wild places and wild things and a respect for all creatures.
